Stokes fails to take wicket, scores two on Canterbury debut


Stokes, still waiting to hear if he will be charged by police after being arrested over a late-night fracas in Bristol in September, was playing for Canterbury in New Zealand's Ford Trophy 50-over domestic competition.

Stokes batted at four and his dismissal saw Canterbury slump to 3/5 against Otago.

On the field, the all-rounder was dismissed for two and then failed to take a wicket in his nine overs as Otago claimed a three-wicket win. Stokes has bowled 4 overs for 26 so far.

Stokes scored two with a pull before he was bowled via an inside edge playing back to slow left-armer Anaru Kitchen at the Mainpower Oval.

Stokes remains banned from worldwide duty while the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decide whether or not he will be charged, although the 26-year-old is free to play domestic cricket.

Rosenqvist happy to win after mistake
Audi said the issue was apparently an administrative mistake that gave them no advantage on the racetrack. Incidentally, this is Abt's third such disqualification in Formula E over the past three seasons.
